I have to admit, I see many more sunsets than sunrises, but the ones this past week have been spectacular. Our eyes see much more glorious color than the camera lens sees, but the mountains silhouetted against the sunset sky never cease to touch my soul.
What I was really referring to in the title, though, was the song from Fiddler on the Roof that says, among other things, “Sunrise, sunset, sunrise, sunset! Swiftly fly the years. One season following another, laden with happiness and tears.” Since Florence Marie had decided to leave her motor home here and let the church have it, we signed the title over and Pastor Adam listed it on Craigslist on Thursday. Saturday afternoon, it left the parking lot at the hand of the new owner! We never thought it would go that quickly, but we praise the Lord that it did. So now the back parking lot at the church begins a season without a self-contained RV for the first time in several years. In its place is a camper our pastors Adam and Allie Kemper recently purchased. Their adventure camping with two pre-school aged boys has only begun!
This weekend has been the spring 4th Avenue Street Fair and we went by ourselves this time. Even though I didn’t buy any, you might know where you’ll find me if there’s jewelry for sale.
And you can bet if there’s barbecue, we can’t be far away!
Today we had our last meal for the season at Ole Mexican Restaurant. We ordered the Ole Style Molcajete with steak, chicken and shrimp as well as grilled veggies. We shared and still had plenty to eat.
LeRoy has been busy this afternoon, stowing away most of the things we’ve had outside and moving the bus into position to hook up the dolly and load the car. The electric cord and DirecTV dish will go in last minute in the morning.
We’re headed to the Pima County Fair Grounds tomorrow for a Passport America rally this week. Passport America is a membership that allows us half price camping all across the country. We’ve been members since 2010, but have never attended a rally so this should be fun.
